Warm tatoo

Recommended Posts

Hey folks.

I'm not quite sure I'm asking the right place, but I do not know where else to go.

A couple of years ago I got a really nice tattoo done.

It is quite a large tattoo (about 7 hours of work in a day) and it contains a lot of red, despite the fact that I am aware that it can cause an allergic reaction.

It healed really well. But I sometimes get a warm feeling in the skin in a certain part of the tattoo.

It's not a burning sensation, but more like someone holding a warm hand on the skin. It comes once in a while, and typically lasts most of the day, after which it goes away on its own again.

It does not itch and the skin does not seem to be swollen.

Have any of you experienced anything like this?

does anyone have a clue what it might be?

And is that something I should get examined by the doctor?

Thanks in advance

Actual reactions to red are pretty rare. I think it's a hold over from the old days when Red contained mercury.

It doesn't itch, it isn't swollen, then I wouldn't worry about it. You'd probably have to see the doctor while it was warm. Good luck with that.

I have lines that raise up once in a while. Black ink. I don't worry about it.

    • Great insight, thank you. I have an email into the artist to get his design thoughts. It seems like American Traditional typically has color but I think black/gray or black/gray/blue would really look good. Especially given the size of the piece. Bailing on the olive branch idea as well. I think some subtle clouds/wind will be fill it out.
    • Hi, I just joined to get tattoo ideas and also feedback on my current tattoo cover-up. Thanks 🙂
    • Hi everyone... sorry, I thought I'd posted here earlier. I've found this site a few times over the last year searching various topics. I've never traveled and tattooed... so I would like to.  I feel like I'm still practicing right now... I feel like I'm getting close to figuring out my own styles. I kind of just try to do my best at tattooing whatever people want.  I just want to get better at it.
